Question:

Testicular torsion surgery recovery

Dear Ask The Doctor:
I received surgery for testicular torsion about 4 days ago. I have stitches on both testicles; my right one was torted but my left one was operated on also for preventative measures. I am wondering how long I have to wait before it is safe to ejaculate, whether by masturbation or by sexual activity. Thank you.


Answer:

Recovery from testicular torsion surgery is relatively short. Recovery varies between 10 days to 2 weeks. After this time you may resume sexual activity.
